Rated 4 out of 5Â by John3 Parts not available
The spring loaded end pin wears down. The end bracket mount through use cuts the pin off, thereby dropping the shade to the floor. Your local store doesn't stock replacement parts, nor was I succesful in contacting Bali via the internet to locate a replacement part. The shade is less than 11 months old and shouldn't fail. I believe there is a warranty on the shade,
Customer services gave me a contact number for Bali's service depaerment. No repacement parts are available, therefore they told me to buy another shade....

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rick Works well and is easy to install
I had no problems with this product... it does what it says and really darkens the room.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by AngieRae please do not buy these
If I stop even one person from purchasing these shades, I will feel better. They are junk. I had to search through the reviews to find a way to add tension to them, and even with manually rolling them up very tightly, to add tension, it doesn't does not last.The shades don't go up and down, there is NO WAY for them to function properly. We can never have these all the way pulled up. When I try to pul them up, 9 times out of 10, the rod comes free from the bracket. So we have to leave them pulled down and my son's room is always dark. The rods are installed correctly in the brackets; in fact, it is very difficult to get them in the brackets, but they come out very easily. I will never purchase anything from this brand again, and just need to bite the bullet, get roller shades that actually work, and put these on the curb.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by LadyO They don't roll!
I recently purchased 23 of these shades for a cottage we just build. We didn't want to block our view outside, for the most part, and were looking for an inexpensive way to have some night time/away from the house time privacy. These do block out the light, but that is all they do! They don't roll up! You must battle them (by taking them off and rolling by hand) almost 100% of the time. No Spring action at all! I think only one of the 23 works properly. Will decide what to do about these once we're fully moved in. Very disappointed with them. Avoid them like the plague!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Abuelo good shades but mountings fail
I mounted these shades with the inside mount. The right end where the spring loaded pin is inserted into the wall bracket with the round hole has a problem. The wear and tear between the pin on the shade and the hole on the mount wear. The hole elongates and after a while cuts the pin off at its base where it connects to the spring loaded mount and the shade falls off the window. No replacement units seem to be available for the end unit. Consequently, the whole shade needs replacement.
